Pitstra Field - Enhancing Climate Change Resiliency & Environmental Sustainability of the Livestock Industry

The TACLP at Olds College is enhancing climate change resiliency and environmental sustainability of the livestock industry through the use of innovative technology and rotational grazing practices on the Smart Farm — specifically the 308 acres at Pitstra Farm west of Carstairs, AB  — over the next two years. The main research themes are:

  1. Improving productivity and environmental sustainability in tame and native pastures in Western Canada and

  2. Developing and validating remote carbon monitoring technologies with the potential to increase rancher access to carbon credit programs.
